Comments

Some of those have errors in the titles and authors: Mira Grant wrote Blackout, and Mary Robinette Kowal's book was Glamour in Glass.

Fixed. It's difficult sometimes to decode some people's handwriting.
I think someone's a year off. Seanan McGuire's two novels release under her name in 2012 are Ashes of Honor (the next October Daye book after One Salt Sea) and Discount Armageddon (1st book of her Incryptid series). One Salt Sea was a 2011 release.
